Great Hearts Initiatives | Little Friends

Mission

Based in Naperville, Illinois Little Friends serves over 800 children and adults impacted by autism and other developmental disabilities throughout 9 counties in northeastern Illinois. Established in 1965, at the request of the parents of five children with severe developmental disabilities who could not find services to meet their needs, Little Friends has developed into a multifaceted, human services organization serving children 18 months old to adults in their 80’s and providing leadership and excellence in meeting the educational, residential, vocational and developmental needs of those with developmental disabilities. Little Friends operates three schools, vocational training programs, community-based residential services and the nationally renowned Little Friends Center for Autism.

Little Friends empowers children and adults with special challenges, and their families, to live, learn, work and thrive in their community. We help our clients develop life skills and improve their communication skills, and for clients and their families, we work to increase their quality or life and foster independence so that they may lead the most fulfilling life possible.
